Camp Rolling Hills Book 2: Crossing Over by Stacy Davidowitz

It's time for camp again and Melman can't wait.  Her first love in life is soccer but camp isn't far behind.  She's here to have fun and play soccer!

Amulet Books sent me a copy of this book to read for review (thank you).  It will be published May 10th.

This camp is unique.  No matter what you expect, you probably won't find it here.  However, you will find lots of things that are unexpected!

Melman finds her friend and they go to stake their claim on beds.  She can't believe it when she finds the rest of the girls deciding which pink things they want to wear.  She doesn't even own anything pink.  And they're doing makeup, too.  Ugh!  She doesn't participate.

Steinberg's still messing around with robots.  Since they are having a robot competition, he's sure he'll win.  Unfortunately, peanut butter gets on the wrong kid and he has to use their epi pen to keep them alive.  While he's doing that, his robot catches on fire...

Melman can't get the girls to play soccer, so she dresses up as a Melvin and plays goalie for the boys.  She does an excellent job but can't play because she's a girl and it's a boy team.  Not fair!

Then there's a budding romance for Melman, who doesn't know what to do with it.  And it gets worse, she has to wear a pink dress for three days on a dare.  A dress???  A PINK dress???

This is a rootin' tootin' time at camp with ghosts, dares, and more.  These kids aren't boring and you won't be bored either!
